For me, it's 'wierd' and people who put 'loose' instead of 'lose' and possibly 'promice' that get me wound up.
IT'S NOT THAT DIFFICULT
it's wrong! Lots of people get it wrong though.
I am a massive spelling and grammar nerd. The other day I nearly did a sick when my boss wrote 'people like yourself'. Ugh.
It's time for CHANGE.
but it pisses me off when people can't pronounce things correctly like:
Pacific when they mean specific
Cris when the mean crisps
Suscription when they mean subscription etc...
Quite a few of the others are posted already.
erm...allready is another I suppose.
bullying towards dukebox.
it's just disgusting.
People seriously get worked up by these things......?
scarry thymes we are lithing inn!
You get that, right?
There's no either or. There's no exclusivity. In that context, it's entirely nonsensical.
I'M saying I'm happy that I get wound up by spelling and not excited by anime. There's no 'or' involved.
In response to what I said. To the point that it's completely irrelevant nonsense.
It's NOT irrelevant nonsense. You said you can't believe people get wound up by it, I'M saying I don't understand why you'd get excited by anime.
THINK IT THROUGH.
because there's nothing to freaking think about.
Okay, so let's say I started that "SNOW" thread. And then you responded saying "Getting excited about snow is stupid". And I responded to that with "Yeah, well I'd rather be excited by snow than get wound up by 'LADS'"
(No, I can't believe I went through your post history to find something either.) Anyhow, read that scenario - does the final comment make sense? Because I've changed nothing other than the subjects involved, and reversing the excite/wound thing.
that is really, really simple.
It's a little infuriating.
He wants to meet you too. Isn't that cool?
I gave up on accents a long time ago.
even when the accents don't actually go there...
Some pople spell it that way, but it's not how 99% of people do, and it's 'officially' considered no accent.
if 99% of people converted to using there for all types of their they're etc, would it make it correct?
my question was "if 99% of people converted to using there for all types of their they're etc, would it make it correct?"
That's a stupid thing to ask.
http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/life_and_style/education/article4698949.ece it suggest that as there are recurring mistakes in many spelling, perhaps they shouldn't be wrong.
do you have an opinion on that?
There shoes are over there in the corner, there dirty.
Their shoes are over there in the corner, they're dirty.
try separating them, see how good it feels:
mmmmmm all better now.
Oh yeah and definately = fuck off and die
the a and the lot were supposed to get further apart from each other, but the extra spaces have been deleted, thus ruining the effect.
I was feeling it
pull your fingers out, morons
don't get upset
I thought it was just there and their.
(or its capitalisation for that matter)
with a "W" a the start rather than a "V"
It must sound like a northener asking his mother to give a reason for something.
On the work computer someone was trying to get to the channel 4 website. In the address bar thing they tried chanle4.com, chanel4.com and channle4.com. I'm really curious as to who it is though.
really does my swede in. I don't understand why so many people do it, it doesn't even begin to make sense.
which, when spoken, sounds like 'would of'
but grammatically speaking, 'would of' makes no sense at all. That's the point I'm trying to make.
of / have
alot / a lot
your / you're
there / they're / their
people who can't get OF HAVE right are utter morons
i'm not too picky about spellings, but this one makes me want to break things.
too / to
